Chelsea, Man City play for a draw that keeps both teams happy in title race

Saturday's draw wasn't fun for the fans but does help both teams stay in lockstep atop the Prem.

LONDON -- Three thoughts on Chelsea's 1-1 draw with Manchester City in the Premier League.

1. Title rivals share points

There were a reported 650 million people looking on from across the globe but planet Earth may not have been too impressed by an often-turgid encounter between English football's two best teams. Five points remains the gap between leaders Chelsea and Manchester City.

As expected, neither team was ready to bet the farm on the whole affair. Given that their need for victory...

Nemanja Matic superb, Chelsea attack poor in 1-1 draw with Manchester City

Former Chelsea man Craig Burley breaks down Chelsea's 1-1 draw with reigning title holders Manchester City.

Chelsea remain five points clear of title rivals Manchester City after Saturday evening's 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge. It wasn't pretty and it didn't live up to the hype, but in the end, as far as Blues supporters leaving the ground went, it didn't matter. One more game played, one step closer to the title.

Mourinho's silence speaks volumes as Chelsea, Man City fail to entertain

Under-siege Chelsea retained a five-point lead at the top of the Premier League after repelling Manchester City at Stamford Bridge.
Former Chelsea man Craig Burley breaks down Chelsea's 1-1 draw with reigning title holders Manchester City.

LONDON -- Jose Mourinho had a result he probably accepted, but the world beyond the Special One definitely didn't receive the match it desired. Nor did it get to hear his views on a 1-1 draw in which his Chelsea team held Manchester City at arm's length.

Saturday's game was billed as the "biggest" game of the season so far and could have had a major impact on the title race; sadly, the latest of his self-imposed media blackouts meant that neither he nor any of his coaching staff gave their opinions...

Chelsea's Diego Costa maintains innocence despite 3-game stamp ban

The ESPN FC crew debate if it's possible for Chelsea striker Diego Costa to change his behavior on the pitch.

Chelsea striker Diego Costa insists there was no malicious intent behind the stamp on Emre Can which earned him a three-match ban from the Football Association.

The 26-year-old was suspended for three games for violent conduct by the FA after an independent regulatory commission on Friday ruled he deliberately stamped on the ankle of the Liverpool midfielder in Tuesday's Capital One Cup semifinal second leg.

Costa says he accepts and respects the punishment, but stresses he did not set out to hurt...
